Shell the peas and wash them. Peel the onions and chop them. Clean the parsley, wash it and chop it.
Heat the oil in a saucepan and fry the chopped onions for a few minutes.
Now add the peas and leave them to flavour for about 15 minutes over moderate heat, sprinkling them occasionally with a few tablespoons of water and stirring them often.
When the peas begin to soften, sprinkle with the chopped parsley, season with a pinch of salt, mix well and sprinkle with a few more tablespoons of water.
Continue cooking for another 15 minutes, over low heat, stirring occasionally, then transfer the preparation onto a serving dish and serve it on a warm table.
